Syria rescue group says 10 killed in airstrike on shelter

Israel warns Syrians approaching Golan frontier

The International Rescue Committee said the government's advance in southwestern Syria has trapped tens of thousands of displaced Syrians along the frontier with the Golan Heights, which Israel occupied in 1967.

The Observatory said the forces had seized the village of Mashara, about 11 km (7 miles) from the Golan frontier, after heavy shelling, and were now trying to capture elevated land south of the village with shelling and air strikes.

A small group of Syrian soldiers took up position in Daraa al-Balad on Sunday, a key rebel-held quarter, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor.

Government forces backed by Russian air support have recovered large swaths of territory across southern Syria in the last three weeks, advancing unopposed by Assad's western and regional foes into the strategically vital region near Jordan and Israel.

The SOHR monitor said an estimated 1,400 people were to be evacuated on Sunday, including rebels from the city and broader province.

Syrian state television confirmed the transfers had begun, broadcasting images of white buses they said were carrying the fighters, their blue curtains drawn, surrounded by military forces.

In recent days, rebels have handed heavy-duty arms and equipment to regime forces who entered the city's rebel-held southern districts for the first time in years to plant the national flag.

Hundreds of fighters and their families were evacuated to northern Syria after a deal with the government.

Mohammed said the bombing triggered a new wave of displacement, with hundreds leaving the town again.

Despite an worldwide outcry, government forces have retaken swaths of the area, including the border with Jordan, and are inching closer to the sensitive frontier with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Not only has the operation, spurred on by Syrian President Bashar Assad, led to a massive humanitarian disaster, but it has brought Iran and its terror proxies even closer to the Israeli border.

Alongside the military offensive, the government has struck "reconciliation" deals, essentially a negotiated capitulation in a number of villages that have been in rebel hands for years, to restore government control there.

Israel considers it paramount to roll back Iran's territorial expansion before the USA draws down its forces, the Wall Street Journal said, pointing to the June strike as indicating that urgency.

Russia, one of the other countries that signed onto the Iran nuclear deal, remains in the pact. A large humanitarian aid operation to government-held areas of southwest Syria began this week, after the United Nations on Monday said the government had asked it to begin deliveries.

A US intelligence report viewed by American media, however, said Putin was expected to ask Trump to deliver on his promise and indeed pull out of Syria.
